Party in the USA

My mom spoiled the girls with a night out last night at the Miley Cyrus concert.  She bought us tickets months ago, and Halle has been not-so-patiently waiting for the big night.  She LOVES Miley Cyrus.  So, last night my mom, Bethany (minus Audrey :( Missed you!), Halle, and I headed downtown for the concert.  We had a great time.  I haven't heard that much squealing in a while.  My ears are still recovering.

Thanks for the tickets, Mom!  You're the best!

All About the Kids!

I've been a serious blog slacker.  Hopefully, I can play a little catch-up today.  We've been taking it pretty easy the last couple of weeks.  Sam has been loving football season (well, mostly loving... he's almost over the Florida State loss... almost).  I've been enjoying my time at home with the kids, but I'm excited to start substituting on Fridays.  I've really missed teaching, and my dad has Fridays off, and volunteered to watch my kids while I go in.  I'm excited to get back in the school, even if it is for only one day a week.  The kids are doing great.  Halle is loving preschool and dance, and Chase is the cutest, little "chunka" around.  So, for the most part, life is pretty good!

Here's a couple of pictures from Halle's class field trips:
This is Halle feeding the horses at Wheeler Farm.  

Here's my Chunk-a-love at the farm.

Chase chillin' at the aquarium...  Notice how he doesn't have any shoes on.  He HATES shoes.

Halle and her friend Mallory touching the sting rays.  I thought Halle was going to jump in and swim with them a few times.

Chase's diet mostly consists of milk and goldfish crackers because he hates when I try to feed him with a spoon.  So, I've finally decided that he can just feed himself whatever we are eating.  It's messy, but worth a picture.

First Day of Preschool

All summer long, Halle has been asking, "How many days until preschool starts?"  We've been answering this question for months, so we were all thrilled when the day finally arrived!  She's had her "first day of school" outfit picked for weeks.  She looked so stinkin' cute walking into Miss Karie's Preschool.  It should be a fun year!

We also started dance again.  She's a busy girl, but that's just how she likes it!

What a Game!

Am I a Bad Mom?

Bottom line:  I cannot wait for Halle's preschool to start.  I will not cry.  I will probably skip home after dropping her off.  That girl makes me tired!  So, is there something wrong with me?

Next question:  Can a 10 month old go to preschool?
